"Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep! " When the villagers came to help the boy who cried, "Wolf, " the boy laughed. He had been bored.

"WMD! WMD! Saddam has WMD! " When no WMD were found, the boy president said: "Regime change ...evil dictator. " But he was pulling the wool over the eyes of the public so they couldn 't see that he was just trying to get reelected. And he wanted oil.

Even though there probably are wolves making WMD out there, not enough people trust George W. Bush anymore.
